There like all forecasts you can never rely on it 100%, I've found this one about the best http://magicseaweed.com/UK-Ireland-Surf-Forecast/1/

You could fone Gt Yarmouth CG for a inshore forecast 01493851338 which seems more up to date, you can also tell them your paddle plan and when you expect to return.

Thanks mate, do you usually stick to a paddle plan?


I do yes, well within a little. I've had "over helpful" people on the beach foning the CG before and reporting a kayak in peril, if the CG know you are there with your fone, vhf, flares etc it can save the rescue rib putting to sea unnecesary.

By the way Roller m8 the wind atm is bloody awful you get weeks and weeks when you cant go yakking, its going to be blowing a howler again this weekend. Makes me sick I need to get after those coddies again.

You must have got your hobie then! I find the met office inshore forecast about the most accurate if a little pesimistic at times, but i guess it pays to be safer. The weather forecast for our section this weekend is atrocious TYPICAL! :rtfm::bones:
